1080 Media managed the live streaming of the Abu Dhabi International Triathlon for Aurora Worldwide, a 3 hour broadcast shown throughout the world on TV and online. It was a fantastic result for Britain’s Alistair Brownlee who won his first race since the Olympics by breaking the course record.
It was a step up in distance for the 24-year-old Yorkshireman, who has dominated the sport over the past four years, winning two world titles and Olympic gold in London.
Brownlee was racing over the short course in Abu Dhabi, which featured Olympic-length swim and runs of 1.5km and 10km respectively, sandwiching a 100km bike leg that included riding round the Yas Marina Formula One circuit.
Congratulations to all involved in the production.
